The Greatest Sandwich of All Time

We are nearing the end of September!

For this week’s prompt, we are working on adding those important details to our writing. Think of the books that you love…now think on why you love those stories. Without all the wonderful character descriptions, setting details, action details, etc. the writing would be boring, dull, uninteresting, and we just wouldn’t read. Think of the authors’ styles whose books you enjoy who bring those great stories to life….and how they write. You need to add the details to your writing, too. Whether it is for a creative write, a paper explaining a scientific procedure, or answers to a test, you must explain with details.

So, what is the greatest sandwich you have ever had? Explain it in detail, from top to bottom, using colorful and expressive adjectives and strong verbs. Make our mouths water! (Think of the mini lesson we have just had.)

Begin with a creative lead, add your descriptions and details, and end with a concluding sentence. One paragraph only. No story, no dialog. Make your points clearly and efficiently.

Be sure to show correct usage of the two comma rules we have learned so far: listing items in a series and connecting two independent clauses with a conjunction.

Also, do not restate the question in your first sentence: The greatest sandwich I have ever had is…do not do this!

  1. A large sandwich sat over a thick plate with a tomato, a few pieces of turkey, and a wide pickle. On the top of the sandwich, the crispy and crunchy bread made a snapping sound every time that I bit into it. Next, comes the thick, bright red tomato slice that gleamed whenever it was at a strange angle from the light. Below the tomato, three stringy maple glazed pieces of turkey stood. At last, a rough, firm pickle was forced between bread and the turkey. The bottom half of the bread was flat on both sides and was full of moisture. All in all, I wanted to savor that moment, but I wanted to eat much more of those sandwiches that day.

  2. Mmmmmmmm I’m so hungry for a sandwich but which kind? I know a ham and cheese sandwich, those are good.

Then when its done baking you putting it on a plate and waiting to eat it. Then it’s time to eat it slowly eating it and you can taste the perfection. Well see you later I’m of to the stove to make a delicious and perfect grilled cheese.

The lettuce was the silkiest green topping that I have ever seen. The lettuce was followed by the turkey with the brightest shade of pink. Then another one of those big toasted whole wheat breads on the bottom of his samwich. Gee I almost forgot that my stomach was growling earlier. Got to go. Bye.

  7. Italian subs the juiciest most mouth watering sub in the world.

In between that delicious bread is the freshly cut lettuce that is made in great gardens all around the world. Now comes the most delicious part of the sandwich, the bacon. The bacon is the juiciest and most crispy turkey bacon, and is the perfect type of bacon for this sandwich. Although I’m not very fond of tomatoes, they make the sandwich taste a lot better with its juiciness. Now comes the the last but definitely not least brown juicy meat.

The cheese started to oozing out from under the bread and the bread was the right brown and black color, so I knew that it was done. I smacked the sandwich on the plate and put my face right over it so I could smell the fried cheese and bread. I picked up the sandwich and took a huge bite.

This is the best sandwich I’ve ever had because the delicious taste stays in your mouth for hours. But,if you don’t like it then you’ll have that taste that you hate in your mouth forever.

  31. To make the greatest sandwich ever, I begin with a toased hamburger bun.
    I put delicious ketchup from Spanish tomatoes, on top of that a juicy hamburger still pink inside, and next thin slices of cucumber, and Brazilian tomatoes. To make it extra healthy,
    I choose bananas, and I put them into a tall section of a smoll watermelon. The top is made from a pizza whit mushrooms and Italian cheese that I place up side down. Now anyonae can still eat it with clean hands.
